I remembered another sym from last time: My immune system doesn't work for crap! I came down with a cold yesterday that immediately
settled in my chest. I am coughing like crazy, which is makes my uterus feel like it is being ripped from my body. I am hitting the vitamin C so I am hopeful it will pass soon. If anyone hasn't picked it up by now, I am a "solve it with nutrition/vitamins" freak.:LOL The best part is we are going to my mil's this weekend and my stepfil smokes a pipe (he doesn't actually smoke when we are there, but it's not like the smell just dissappers the minute he stops! Which is what my mil seems to think.) so my poor lungs are going to get a double stress. Also, my dh doesn't want to tell his family we're preg. yet. But I think my ds might have picked up on the "baby in mommy's tummy". I can just imagine him saying something when everybody is there on Saturday! (its a fam party for ds 2nd b-day) esp since my best friend is also preg, due in Nov, and her daughter talks about "baby in mommy's tummy" all the time and my ds is with her alot! so . . . this could be a very interesting weekend! My dh is kinda like shannon's--"can't we just wait until the last possible minute to tell them? Like when you are totally showing and we can't deny it anymore"! LOL I hear rumors of people that have great il, but it is just a little hard to wrap my brain around!LOL
Parker'smommy, I get confused about the whole "how preg am I" thing too. I chart, so I know when I ovulate (~day 19) and I have 35day cycles, so I don't fit their 28 day cycle/day14 ovulation mold. I know my due date based on my chart. So I found out what week I'm at by going to Baby Center and signing up for their emails using my self-calculated due date rather than first day of last period.
They say I am 4wk preg. Which is about a week less than what the dr will decide based on fdlp. I am taking in a copy of my chart and telling them when I'm due!
There will be no inductions here! (side note: my dh laughs at me because I often go off about how I refuse to be induced, babys being late is mostly a figment of dr imagination etc. but my ds was almost 6 wk early!:LOL dh thinks I should just worry about keeping baby in long enough.)
